Welcome to the Home Page of Milford & District U3A

Where retired and semi-retired people can come together and learn together


Milford & District?   Although we are based in and around Milford in Surrey we have members from as far afield as Camberley, Walton-on-Thames, Bookham, Farnham, Liphook and Cranleigh!   Nestled as we are in the beautiful Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty we are perfectly placed for our rambling, ambling, walking, pub walks and cycling groups.

Currently we have active groups in all the following categories:

  • Arts & Crafts
  • Sports & Fitness
  • History – Current Affairs – Culture, Visits
  • Languages
  • Literature: Reading & Writing
  • Music
  • Outdoor Pursuits
  • Science & Computing
  • Food: Cooking & Eating Out
  • Games & Quizzes

We are always looking for new groups and new topics  and in particular would like to establish groups for Photography, Boules, Cooking, French and Dance so if you have experience in any of these areas we would love to hear from you.  Full support will be given should you agree to lead a new group.  Painting and Drawing groups; we already have more than one of each but these are ever popular, often over subscribed, and we could do with more Group Leaders to cope with the demand.


Image: QuizzesWilling to try new ideas, we will set up groups for quite small numbers or expand those of huge interest so that two or more meetings are available to accommodate everyone. This policy is solely dependent on our marvellous, unpaid, volunteer leaders who freely give their time to encourage members to take part in self help learning.

As of October 2021 Milford & District U3A had 54 Groups open to its members, somewhat less than previous years due to the lingering effects of Covid.

In addition to the groups, Milford & District U3A has monthly Friday Meetings where we have had a variety of fascinating guest speakers.
